Some day I plan on popping open one of my old math text books and running through the SHA-256 math formula and solve it for 'x'. Where 'x' is the private key of Pirate's BTC address.

Should be close to the difficulty of solving the Pythagorean theorem and such. Maybe with a few more symbols and numbers. Like E=mc^2
